this is such an intense scene

anonymous asked:

Dude it sounds like you had a panic attack...

I… guess you’re right? I hadn’t thought of it that way, but I’m reading the symptoms and that sounds correct. Wow.

I just remember being hit by this wave of horror and shame and intense, nauseating empathy and not knowing what to do. I couldn’t believe what was happening, and then they laughed me off and said it was no big deal when I said it was not okay, so I just had to stand there and bear witness without letting on that my body was on fire and I was choking on the smoke. I felt really guilty about that for a while, but ultimately I think it was best that I didn’t make a scene ‘cause then the kids might have become suspicious of the situation and not been (hopefully) shielded by naïveté.

Question. What is 91 whiskey and why have I never heard of it?

brEH. okay holy shit, Ninety One Whiskey is a 400k+ WWII!au destiel fic masterpiece. I have never read another fic like it. It is so incredibly well detailed and historically accurate. And the writing so flawlessly carries you through every scene, every battle, and paints the time period around you. istg, it could be a published novel. It’s easily the best thing I have ever read, and I mean that. The author has gotta be in the history field somehow, bc holy shit. Every little detail is accounted for and it’s unbelievable. There’s so much action and every scene had me itching for more, more, mORE. It definitely gets heavy though, especially being in Castiel’s head. They’re in the middle of a war zone and it gets pretty intense, but man. It’s fucking worth it. It’s definitely gonna take a while for me to recover from this one. New favorite fic by far. 1000/10 would recommend. 

GLUE - S/T MLP

Austin, Texas GLUE have built quite a reputation in the US hardcore punk scene, the result of intense and chaotic live shows (it’s not really surprising that the most representative photographs of the band include their singer casually sporting a bloody face). But this release on La Vida Es Un Mus is their first proper LP since they put out their demo cassette back in 2012. It’s fast, raw and has that in-your-face attitude that first made me love this band. It is also important to note that all the proceeds from digital sales are donated to Lysistrata NYC, “an organization that provides services to survival sex workers, who are disproportionately from already marginalized communities.”

The scarf scene was better than my expectations

Hannes’ death was sadder than my expectations

One Punch Man Eren was more intense than my expectations

The ending sequence was 10 times more satisfying than my expectations

Season 3’s release date is sooner than my expectations


Damn do I like having low expectations!

Writer’s Scene Checklist

This works for film/TV as well as for a checklist for an entire novel chapter. Decided to make this because I used to have a lot of trouble figuring out how to structure a scene.

  1. Exposition
    1. Introduce the scene’s characters, situation, time, and place. Basically, let us know how the setting has changed since the last scene (if at all).
    2. This shouldn’t be too long or drawn out (unless you have good reason to). This is just to orientate the audience. And if the scene/story calls for it, you don’t have to orientate them to all four; characters, situation, time, and place. In a mystery, you may not let the audience know everyone who is present, what time it takes place, where, etc. Only do what’s necessary for them to not be too disoriented.
  2. Rising Action
    1. Complication of the situation; intensify or complicate the main conflict; introduce a new conflict. This is the gist of scene, which takes up the most word count/screen time.
  3. Turning Point/Climax
    1. Situation/conflict of the scene is directly addressed or confronted. This is what the gist of the scene has been building up to; the highest moment.
    2. Often times this is the shortest part of the scene since it is a single moment.
  4. Falling Action
    1. Conflict either appeased, put off, or ended; hint of new conflict/situation. Unless this is the final scene, I like to think of this as the SET UP for the next respective scene/chapter.
  5. Conclusion/Tag
    1. Rise of new conflict/situation. Usually, the next scene’s conflict is clearly stated in the conclusion, or at least overtly hinted at.


EXAMPLE SCENE: Airplane ride through a storm.

  1. Exposition
    1. Milo and Alisha are on a passenger plane, headed through the Bermuda Triangle.
    2. This could be stated in one sentence: “Milo shoved Alisha’s carry-on bag into the overhead compartment, taking care not to squash their lunch.”
  2. Rising Action
    1. Milo is nervous about planes, and it is no help that there is supposed to be a storm. Alisha assures him they’ll be alright.
    2. This is the gist of the scene and can carry on for several pages as they talk about his anxiety, what they’re going to do when they land, etc.
  3. Turning Point/Climax
    1. The plane hits severe turbulence due to an intense downburst.
    2. As I said before, stating the climax doesn’t take very long at all since it is, in fact, only a single moment: “The plane lurched downward and the emergency masks dropped with it.”
  4. Falling Action
    1. The pilots lose control; oxygen masks deploy; panic ensues in the cabin.
    2. This could take some time, but usually doesn’t. Once the climax is reached, you’ve now begun setting up for the next scene.
  5. Conclusion/Tag
    1. The plane crashes on a strange island.
    2. You could end a scene like this right as they crash; you could end it a bit after the crash as they bear witness to the aftermath. Personally, and for the most part, I would end the scene at the impact, or just after, and save the aftermath for the next scene.

If this seems really simplified, that’s because it is. It may seem like it’ll make your scene short and choppy, but trust—it won’t. These are simply beats in your scene that you need to hit for the scene to seem plausible; and it isn’t even necessary to have them in this order. You could cleverly state in the beginning that the plane is going to crash, putting the conclusion in the beginning, and then build up to it. It’s all up to you. But these are the beats that make a scene or even a chapter (though some chapters may have more than one scene in them–but even with multiple scenes in a chapter, the chapter will still have these five beats overall)

NaLu Week Bonus Day 1: Video Games

In which Natsu gets way too into his online games against Gray. While he’s yelling at the TV and angry that Gray is beating him, Lucy is woken up from her sleep. So she takes it upon herself to ‘distract’ Natsu from his loss.

Anddd, you can decide where the rest goes;)

The next day:

Gray: What happened man? Didja give up ‘cause you were losing?

Natsu: Yeah right! I would have kicked your ass if Lucy hadn’t distracted me!

Gray: Distract you? How?

Natsu: Well, first she-

Lucy: *blushes intensely* NATSU! Don’t you dare!

Gray: *glances between the two* …gross.

Juvia: Juvia can distract Gray-Sama too if he’d like!<3

P.s., this prompt was originally going to be a scene from my fic, Down the Rabbit Hole, but it kind of took on a life of its own! Ah well, still fun :)

Bonus:

Peter Cushing + That sexy neck thing he always does after getting choked out

i want an intense scene between keith and lance. they’re in the middle of battle, all the other paladins are somewhere else. everything around them is moving so fast, but then it’s a close up of them, and keith asks “do you trust me?” and they’re looking at each other, eyes searching, and lance says “yes” and they’re still looking at each other, intensely, logger than needed, before the moment is forced to break

Instead of moving to defend herself, Rey closed her eyes. Ren hesitated, confused by her actions. A long moment passed in which Ren sensed a change in the air, a change in her.
